WF 2487 - Elmer Gandy Evangelist Party

WF 2484-2498 is a series of photographs of the Gandy family. These images evidently were taken for publicity purposes. This photo shows Mrs. Gandy and the daughters playing their instruments. Gandy is standing by his painting of a church in the mountains. The similarity of the name Elmer Gandy to Sinclair Lewis' 1927 novel ELMER GANTRY is hard not to overlook. Sinclair's novel satirized religious hypocrisy and bigotry by focusing on a morally corrupt evangelist named Elmer Gantry. The novel caused a huge uproar and the book was banned in numerous American cities. It is interesting to speculate if Brady's photos of Elmer Gandy depict a man who took on the slightly-altered name of Sinclair L

This newspaper photo came from the November 11, 1953, SEATTLE TIMES. Harold Wave Whicker is shown holding two of his wood carvings. A resident of Guemes Island, Whicker had been at various times a professor, cartoonist, miner, cowpuncher, newspaper man, sailor, collector of Indian myths, and a wrestler. By 1953 his heart limited him to one quarter mile a day of walking, so he painted Northwest scenes or, when in bed, carved wood. He enjoyed having his paintings shown at exhibitions and having people come to his house to view them; he hated selling them, but sometimes would give newlyweds one so they could have something beautiful in their first home.
